In our youth ministry, we seek to cultivate servant-leadersand committed followers of Jesus Christ from diverse social and ethnic backgrounds and spiritual gifts. With a strong emphases on looking outside of ones self (and at the same time, celebrating the individual), we encourage our youth to be agents of change as they follow the radical example of Jesus.
What happens at “The Mix”?
“The Mix” is a fun, engaging time for our young people to learn about the Christian faith through studying scriptures, playing music and games, doing art, fellowship with each other and serving their neighbors and families!
What age does Youth Group start?
Our youth program starts at 5th grade and goes through 12th grade.
When and where does Youth Ministry meet?
Starting this fall season, the youth will be meeting on Sunday mornings to have a Confirmation Class. Confirmation Class guides our youth in confirming their faith commitments to Jesus and Christian doctrinal truths, but also their allegiance to the church and community. As the youth step into this season, we ask the community to pray for them and also consider mentoring our youth either at Confirmation Class on Sundays or “The Mix” on Fridays. For more information about confirmation and what this looks like for our church, please contact Russell Jeungat firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Mix”youth group meets on Friday nights from 5:30-7pm at Harbor House, 1811 11th Ave, Oakland (times may very for group outings). Traditionally on Sundays, the youth are encouraged to participate in our Sunday morning “Sacred Space” (including com munition) with their parents. Youth are also encouraged to serve monthly in our Children’s Ministry program. As stated above, in this fall season the youth will be in confirmation class on Sundays.
